Abstract

A simple model is used to study downstream variations in the thermodynamic structure of the trade-wind boundary layer due to downstream variations in sea-surface temperature, divergence, surface wind speed, and the thermodynamic structure above the inversion. Model results indicate that dry and cold air advection due to an equatorward increase in sea-surface temperature results in a boundary layer that is less than 1oC cooler and 1 g kg-1 drier than that obtained for steady-state horizontally homogeneous conditions.-from Author
